We often think of anger as a bad thing, but really it’s neither good or bad. What matters is what you do when you feel it. We get angry when we think we’re being treated unfairly or when something happens in our life that we have no control over. That makes it a useful emotion for figuring out when something isn’t right, motivating us to change things for the better. Anger only becomes bad when we let it get out of hand, when we get aggressive or when we let it control us.

Here's some activities you could do if you're feeling sad

Dealing with anger is an extremely important skill to learn. Though it can be a positive feeling if it used properly, many people let it get the better of them. When that happens, some people can lash out verbally, shouting at people or being physically aggressive.


Sometimes people can actually cause damage, kicking furniture or directing their anger towards other people. In short, it can be dangerous. Usually, your body tells you when you’re angry: you breathe faster, your face gets red, your muscles tense or you feel like you want to hit something, so keep an eye out. In the worst cases, sometimes anger means we end up hurting the people we love most.


Learning to control anger is massively important, so it’s important to stay in control. Admit to yourself that you are angry and figure out why. Ask yourself what you can do to keep the situation from happening again. Don’t be afraid to explore the causes of angry emotions.
